Are you considering a basement remodel? It’s an excellent idea given that 60% of U.S. homes have wet basements, and 38% run the risk of basement mold, according to This Old House. When it comes to what you’re looking to get out of your remodel, you have a large pool of options. Here are four ideas that your local design build basement remodeling company can help you create.
1. A Home Office
Do you work from home? Whether it’s full-time or on occasion, you need a dedicated home office space. Luckily, a basement remodeling company can finish your basement and create the office space you need. Since the basement is often quieter than the rest of your home, it’s the perfect spot for phone calls, video calls, or just focusing on your work without distractions.
2. A Guest Suite
While some homes have a guest bedroom, a guest suite can be a real game changer. Do you have family that likes to visit and stay with you? What about friends who come over for a drink and end up needing a place to sleep? If so, a guest suite could be a great idea for your basement remodel. With a private bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living room, and more, your guests will truly appreciate having their own beautiful space.
3. A Laundry Room
Your home more than likely has a washer and dryer, but does it have a dedicated laundry room? If you choose to create a laundry room in your basement remodeling project, you can add countertops for easy sorting and folding, cabinets for storing things like detergent, dryer sheets, or an ironing board, and even a sink for hand washing delicates easily.
4. A Home Theater
A basement is typically a dark space. While windows can most certainly be added in most cases, a dark basement can be the perfect spot for a home theater. A basement remodeling company can create a stepped floor for rows of recliners, install recessed lighting fixtures, and install a large TV or projector screen.
